There is got to be something about Miami that makes it a haven for retirees, a tourist mecca, a celebrity hideout,
and much more. For the most part, this dazzling city embraces a lot more, and the best way to find out is to plan
Don’t forget that it is the number one cruise passenger port in the world and the busiest as well. In addition, the
city draws over 12 million visitors every year to its beaches, festivals, shopping, and other events including Art
deco attractions in the historical Art Deco district in South beach. So let’s look at a few things that make Miami
what it is as one of the hottest tourist destination especially for the younger members of the family.
Miami has a lot to see and do whether you are a backpacker or a family looking for a great place to vacation
with the kids. Zoo Miami is definitely a great start. It is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida and
is home to exotic creatures from around the world. Your kids are sure to be mesmerized by the clouded
leopards, tree kangaroos, komodo dragons, and other exotic species.
The zoo also houses a large number of koalas, meerkats, giraffes, and gorillas always eager to show off and
entertain the kids even more. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore Dr. Wilde's World and its rainforest theme
and hop on the monorail for a nice view of the whole park.
There are also duck boat rides, petting zoo and wildlife shows that allows for some great edutainment. One of
the interesting things about the zoo is that animals aren’t kept in cages but are grouped together according to
their geographic territory such as Asia, Australia, and Africa.
Miami Children’s Museum
Another great place for younger members of the family is the Miami Children's Museum on Watson Island. The
museum features many interactive exhibits that allow children to experience various settings. Pet Central is one
of the major attractions where your child can learn creative ways to develop an understanding of how to look
after and own a pet. The gallery covers everything from choose a pet to visits to the vet so you can be sure of
going home with a kid that understands the responsibilities behind owning a pet.
Don’t forget to include Monkey Jungle in your itinerary. The unique wildlife park in southern Miami-Dade
County offers visitors a close encounter with many species of primates. The park has carefully constructed
pathways through which the kids can enjoy watching monkeys scamper around and interact with one another, at
times oblivious to the humans around.
Hop on a Bus Tour
Open top Double Decker Tours are an ideal way to keep the kids entertained as well. This is one of the best
ways to soak in the best of what Miami has to offer. The tour is designed to include various places of interest
